Mr. Speaker,
It is a pleasure for me to be among friends and to speak to you today at a time of great challenge but also great opportunity in our country and indeed on our island. In this regard, let me thank the Chamber for its continued advocacy over the many years in support of small and large businesses. I wish to confirm that you have a friend, indeed many friends, in this Government.

The work of this Chamber spans the length and breadth of our wonderful island. Grand Bahamas has the distinction of being the only island in The Bahamas which can boast both a modern city with some of the best planned infrastructure in this region, in addition to the tranquillity of a family island setting all on one island. We should be proud, but likewise, justly disappointed that to date we have not been able to capitalize on this tremendous asset.
